1956 Smith-Corona Silent-Super
Up for sale is a pretty Smith-Corona Silent-Super in bubblegum pink, which was manufactured in 1956. This typewriter is a highly desirable machine because of its paint, which is 100% original. This model was also available in blue, green, and tan. Condition-wise, the paint is not perfect- there are some areas of slight discoloration (see all pictures) however that is a common issue with this machine, and the paint is still in great shape (it could be discolored a ton more and have scratches/areas of missing paint).
Mechanically, this typewriter is in perfect working order. Everything is fully functional, and being the top of the line for Smith-Corona's portables, this machine is a truly dependable workhorse which can still be used heavily and reliably to this day. The touch is extremely smooth and light, and this machine can definitely be used for heavier writing such as a novel. This typewriter is also easy to use and care for, and uses universal ribbons which are sold on this site. The owner's manual can be downloaded for free here: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/SC1958.pdf
Also included is the original key for the case.
If you're in the market for a beautiful original pink machine that can be used heavily and reliably, then look no further- this is about as good as it gets.
